Peebles Complaint
"I have expressed concern that I think that this is a very slippery slope to selectively enforce an archaic law that has got no victim," Peebles said on "Your World," adding James should allow Trump to continue the appeals process unimpeded if she is confident in her case.

Today I am posting what I consider a secondary news story. Last night one of my friends here posted what I consider to be a major story as it happened. I will contribute to that rather than try to take away from his excellent post, otherwise the story today would have been "Barbarians at the gate."

For now, I am going to focus on a progressive with a modicum of integrity. A very rare quality when it comes to people on the left. Don Peebles is a progressive democrat who was a big donor to Barack Obama. Peebles was also a big supporter of the radical activist Letitia James. He has a very low opinion of Donald Trump, but he does seem to have a sense of fair play and some respect for equal treatment under the law. In New York Donald Trump has been convicted of fraud in which nobody was defrauded under a law that was used only for Donald Trump.

I have to give him credit for speaking truth to power:

"I have expressed concern that I think that this is a very slippery slope to selectively enforce an archaic law that has got no victim," Peebles said on " Your World ," adding James should allow Trump to continue the appeals process unimpeded if she is confident in her case.

Peebles also said the bond has nothing to do with whether Trump is a flight risk, but more so a guarantee of sorts the state of New York is able to damage Trump while it has the chance.

"I think they are confident, or think it's likely that this will get reversed, and then there will be no punishment," he said.

As we enter the weekend before Letitia James confiscates Donald Trump's iconic possessions and offers them up for sale at bargain basement prices, there has been no block or stay imposed on the process by any Federal Judge, no outrage by legal experts or law professors. The lone voice is that of a supporter of James and Obama. The only adult in the room.

The latest from the border:

A Texas law enforcement source told Fox News the group consisted of over 300 illegal immigrants, and about 100 adult males rushed the soldiers, and one has been arrested so far for assaulting a soldier. The melee began when one family unit was allowed through. The source said that more arrests are likely coming for destruction of property and assault.

It is hard to have a decent breakfast with Morning Joe on, him and the co-host he dumped his wife for, and she dumped her husband for him. They never forgave Trump for dissing them when they went to visit him. And with all that plastic surgery Joe still doesn't look like Clark Kent, mild mannered reporter for a great metropolitan newspaper!  LMAO!

Happening Now: Letitia James has submitted paperwork to begin seizing Trumps assets to cover the ridiculous $454 million judgement against him.

Trump has until Monday to either get an extension from the appeals court or post the bond.

A weird question that came to me last night, but then again that's when I excel at weird thoughts.

What if, Trump is not able to secure the bond(s) by Monday and James immediately starts the process to seize property. The judge is quick to agree, James files the paperwork and does seize property and puts it up for immediate sale, and lets say it does sell quickly but at pennies on the dollar. Later Trump is able to successfully appeal the judgement. He's not able to reclaim the property as it's already been sold but his case is tossed out as a failure. 

Is Trump able to recoup his losses in property after the fact or is it just gone? With the case tossed out, would he be able to receive money from New York for his stated value of the property? After all, the court case stated that he over-inflated values and if the court case is thrown out wouldn't that mean he is vindicated in that matter?

I'm not a lawyer and I don't know the answer to that question. And to be honest I don't expect to get an honest answer on this here as each side is too engrossed in their own partisanship to provide a fair and unbiased answer. This is something that would be hashed out for years in court I expect. Just something that popped into my mind.

No, it is gone.

He would be vindicated, but James & the left would have taken their pound of flesh.


There is one other consequence. If all of the above happens, I firmly believe Donald Trump will easily be elected President.

If it all plays out that way, it will be devastating to the nation.

THROUGH HARD WORK, TALENT, AND LUCK, I CURRENTLY HAVE ALMOST FIVE HUNDRED MILLION DOLLARS IN CASH, A SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNT OF WHICH I INTENDED TO USE IN MY CAMPAIGN FOR PRESIDENT. THE OFTEN OVERTURNED POLITICAL HACK JUDGE ON THE RIGGED AND CORRUPT A.G. CASE, WHERE I HAVE DONE NOTHING WRONG, KNEW THIS, WANTED TO TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME, AND THAT’S WHERE AND WHY HE CAME UP WITH THE SHOCKING NUMBER WHICH, COUPLED WITH HIS CRAZY INTEREST DEMAND, IS APPROXIMATELY $454,000,000.

I DID NOTHING WRONG EXCEPT WIN AN ELECTION IN 2016 THAT I WASN’T EXPECTED TO WIN, DID EVEN BETTER IN 2020, AND NOW LEAD, BY A LOT, IN 2024.THIS IS COMMUNISM IN AMERICA!

Ok, this one I don't understand. Would love for him (or anyone) to explain how illegal migrants (yeah, I know, not supposed to call them that. Oh well) are killing Social Security and Medicare. I don't know that they can access either system so how are they doing any damage? Social Security and Medicare are having serious issues, but the problem is twofold in that the number of people drawing on the system continues to grow and Washington refuses to do anything to help change those systems to better support the changes.

I think It’s a second order effect.  The programs are heading towards insolvency and money that could be used to buttress them will be spent on illegals, which are costing billions.

Ok, maybe that's it. But AFAIK both programs are still self-supporting. Wouldn't the underlying programs need congressional modifications to come from the general fund instead of their own taxes? I mean, we're already on a path for a 22-25% cut in benefits when the Social Security trust fund runs dry (around 2033) and will only bring in enough in taxes to fund approx 75% of the payouts.

In New York Donald Trump has been convicted of fraud in which nobody was defrauded under a law that was used only for Donald Trump.

Stop whining. And for the love of blackness stop selectively putting a black face 'on' to try to explain affirmative action for Donald Trump! The law he has lost to is a law that could be enforced in civil court and thus it has been. Deal with it. Growth and development is called for in this case.

Shows you didn't follow the damn case. The judge undervalued Trump's properties by millions of dollars.

l

That is what happens when you allow a judge that has no damn knowledge in real estate to preside.

Same fascist judge that refused a jury trial on the case.

Funny he claims no punitive damages were to be awarded; but a $454 million dollar fucking fine? Seems his know of the word punitive is as great as his knowledge of real estate.

Lawfare is the new norm for Democrats/Leftists. Disagree with them and the government will be turned against you at every level.

I have no idea about what you are going on about! Nor am I a New York state judge and I am not fluent in New York law; I can only tell you what is being written out of the court. If you/MAGAs have a case. . . take it to court. . . otherwise, you/MAGAs won't be heard. At least, Donald is there—in court. Give your 'evidence' of how he can win this to him or his attorneys. I will read about it through what is published after you/MAGAs have done so.

I noticed this too. I will give the GOP/MAGAs (and Fox News) props for always finding new ways to talk about dividing America.

Just look at the MAGA party as it tosses out (retires and ends careers of) its own congress-people right now.

As far as Mr. Peebles goes (see article and article photo), if he has a complain about rules and laws. . . he should go to court and testify to it. The court of public opinion is out on this one as a legal undertaking is about to be executed barring some last minute change. 

Oh and the business real estate market may being feeling a 'dark cloud' developing overhead—especially in New York State (and other states) once records are looked into for related over-valuations and fraudulent activities.

The U.S. economy functions on the availability of credit. The foundation of credit is trust . If we were to follow the Trump business model, the economy would implode.

New York Attorney General   Letitia James   (D) has contended Deutsche Bank lost out on almost $170 million in interest because of Trump’s false assertions.

While a major bank does not make for the most sympathetic victim in the eyes of the public, it is plainly true that any state — and especially New York — has an interest in maintaining the basic integrity of its economic system.
